HyperChiller

Rapid Drink Chiller

Cold Drinks, Fast

This drink chiller satiates any cold drink craving in just about a minute.

Pour straight from your coffee maker, tea kettle, or French press into the HyperChiller capsule. 60 seconds and minus 130 degrees later you’ll have an undiluted icy drink to freshen your day. It even slips comfily under most single serve coffee makers,
kind of like a mug.

Load up HyperChiller’s inner and outer stainless steel chambers with water, twist them into place, and stick them in the freezer. You’ll wake up to a functioning rapid drink chiller for your coffee, wine, juice, whiskey—virtually any beverage that’s un-carbonated.

Instead of heading to the coffee shop for a drink or planning in advance, you can cool up to two 12 oz. drinks before refreezing HyperChiller for the next day.

Next time you’re craving a fresh-brewed—but cold—drink, you simply need to wait a minute.

    Hello everyone! I'm Nick Anusbigian, the creator of the HyperChiller. I'm very excited to have this product featured as today's Grommet, and am happy to answer any questions you may have!

    The idea for a device that easily makes iced coffee is great, but engineering and design are a whole other story. What were features you considered essential from the outset?

    @Mike My original goal was to find a way to make iced coffee as easy to enjoy as hot coffee at home -- so it had to work fast, it had to be convenient, and be compatible with everyone's regular brewing routines.

    @Mike It's a fairly low-tech item; and that's what makes it so great! Just four simple components and ice. I was able to connect with good people who specialize in different areas that I was lacking in - and take it from an idea to finished product in the hands of customers all over the globe within 12 months. I didn't do it by myself, I just found the right people to help keep it moving in the right direction.

    How many cups can you do at one time? Can you fill and re-fill several times in one day?

  • Nick
    Nick – Special Guest
    8/25/2016 10:54 AM

    @Ronnie Thanks for the questions! You can fit 12.5 oz at one time, and use it twice in a row before you need to refreeze the product.

    The refreeze time depends on how much ice melted & freezer temp, but we've found most people can make iced coffee in the morning and it's ready again by mid-afternoon when they need another cup.

    Hi Nick,

    This sounds like something my husband would love for his whiskey! What material is the inner lining made of? Also, any plans to make one with a strainer top to use as an iceless cocktail shaker?

    I think I basically answered my own questions by watching the video, but others may still be interested in the answers. It looks like the drink has contact only with stainless steel, correct?

  • Nick

    @Heather J. Hey Heather,

    Yeah it's great for chilling whiskey! The inner cooling surfaces are made of 316 stainless steel - it's the same type that most kitchen utensils are made from.

    @Heather J. As for the cocktail shaker - you can use it like that already just don't shake it :)

    Just pour in, swirl to chill, and then pour out via the spout in the lid!

  • Nick
    Nick – Special Guest
    8/25/2016 11:20 AM

    @Heather J. The drink contacts the lid first when it's poured in. That lid is made of BPA free polypropylene.

    @Nick I really am interested in buying this but am hesitant when anything says BPA free because the BPA had to be replaced with something else. Do you know what that is?

  • Nick
    Nick – Special Guest

    @Carin It's constructed with 100% polypropylene plastic - which is food safe & doesn't contain any known harmful chemicals.

    So my main thing is I like sugar in my tea and coffee, but I hate hot drinks. If you put 2-3 teaspoons of sugar in the HyperChiller does it tend to melt before the liquid cools? How about cleaning?

  • Nick
    Nick – Special Guest
    8/25/2016 11:28 AM

    @Michael Thanks for your questions!

    It will cool rapidly (up to 130+ degrees in a minute for an 8 oz portion) -- I would say to ensure your sugar gets dissolved, it would need to be added prior to chilling.

    Cleaning is simple - for regular use, just pour water onto the lid (just as you did with coffee or tea) and it will flow into the cooling chamber. Swirl that around & dump it out. Once and a while, if you want to disassemble for a deep clean, everything is dishwasher safe.

    @Nick If something liquid is already refrigerator cold will using this device make it more cold to any appreciable degree?

  • Nick
    Nick – Special Guest
    8/25/2016 11:35 AM

    @Dennis The most it could do would chill it by close to the difference in temperature is between your fridge & freezer.

    So unless you have a sub-zero freezer, it's not much.

    Hi Nick,

    It's a great idea with one fault. The 12 oz. drink size will never do. Make the same product for a 32 oz. (Camelbak bottle) size and I'd buy it in a heartbeat. The last time I drank 12 ounces of any beverage, I was in diapers with a teething ring in my mouth :) .

    Philip, you haven't had a bottled or canned beverage since you were teething??

  • Nick
    Nick – Special Guest
    8/25/2016 11:52 AM

    @PHILIP Thanks for the feedback. Getting the volume capacity up would be ideal, but to keep the same surface area to volume ratio (what enables the fast cooling) the product would increase in height so much that it wouldn't fit into freezers.

    The one note I'd like to make is that you can use it twice in a row before refreezing - so it can do 25 oz...not the full 32, but closer!

    @Nick

    Im sorry, i wanted to love this product as I had ordered it about a month or two ago from another website (which unfortunately doesn't allow returns) anyhow - its been nothing but disappointment. The container seems cheaply made in that it takes several attempts to line up the screw top patterns to get it to close correctly. the biggest issue is that it CONSTANTLY freezes close and can never get it open until it defrosts which defeats the purpose (and yes i fill the water lines to the correct spots and store it upright) - any suggestions or others with this issue?

    @M I wish you would have contacted us when you originally bought the product!

    You don't need to open the product to use it, just pour /brew coffee onto the lid - it will flow down through the large opening into the cooling chamber. Let it chill, then pour back out via the spout on the other side of the lid.

    The threads can be finicky because we added stop points to them so it aligns properly when its twisted on fully. But you don't need to worry about the threads for regular use - because it doesn't need to come apart :)

    From the video it looks like it goes down to about 40 degrees...

    and you also fill the glasses that are full of ice! You stated it would be undiluted...but when that ice melts it will be as a regular ice coffee --with ice? I love the idea - but I would love to have nice cold coffee without the ice........and 40 degrees - not quite cold enough for me.

  • Nick

    @Glenna It chills 8 oz of fresh coffee by up to 130+ degrees in 60 seconds.

    We tested this brewing from a Keurig at 195°, and the AVERAGE temp for that volume was 63 degrees after one minute. -- At that temperature, pouring over ice won't create much dilution from ice.

    If you want it ice cold without ice, just let it chill an additional 30 seconds or so & it'll be near freezing.

    Cheers!

    Would this work if only a refrigerator was available - no freezer? Would it make room temperature water cold? Small dorm refrigerator is all that is available.

  • Nick

    8/25/2016 1:06 PM

    @Susan I'm sorry to say it needs to be frozen -- there are vent's on the top of the lid to allow air out when the water expands to ice, if it never freezes water will drip out when you turn it on its side.

    Great idea but the 12 hours to be ready for only two 12oz drinks and then another 12 hours before you can make more is a bit limiting when people are used to drinking beverages in SuperAmerica Big Gulp quantities. Have you considered other designs that would refreeze faster, like sealed compartments filled with quick freezing gel? A larger size down the road might be something to consider, because when people get together for coffee, they go through a lot of it.

    Hi Snype, you're not the first to bring up a larger size. As Nick said, it's the space in the freezer that inhibits that. A faster freezing model is a great idea. If it's not on his list yet, it probably is now.
